singular murders i referenced just now with regard to hadiya pendleton last leek, what does the leadership of the nra need to happen before it will support anything that might make us safer? what needs to happen? >> what you're underscoring here is the fact that we've got to stop asking the question here, what will be enough for them? we've got to seize the opportunity to make sure that they feel the pressure of the american people. they are the ones who are being anti-democratic, small "d." they're the ones being unpatriotic in the sense they're not protecting all the citizens here. to ask what it will take for them, they will have to take somebody from their own families, some person who gets killed, murdered, or harmed that they know intimately for them to feel the message the american people collectively have experienced the horror of seeing these 20 vulnerable children and now miss pendleton subjected to arbitrary forms of violence that can be predicted because of these magazines and these drums and these strips that do nothing but bring carnage to our streets. they have no place in o
night in the murder of hadiya pendleton. >>> and in boston, schools still out tomorrow as crews continue to dig out from two feet of heavy snow. back to "hardball." glank blank >>> welcome back to "hardball." it's a bold headline on the cover of "the new republic" this week. the republicans, the party of white people, and it's an art -- by the way, its art is a clever ode to the beatles' album, the white album. in this article the author investigates the root of a phenomenon he's been covering on "hardball" and we've been covering, the increasingly white male isolated republican party. he says it's derived from the political strategy of the pre-civil war, pro-slavery vice president john calhoun of south carolina. he writes, quote, this is the politics of nullification, the doctrine nearly as old as the republic itself, which holds that the states, singly or in concert, can defy federal actions by declaring them invalid or simply ignoring them. we hear the echoes of nullification in the venting of anti-government passions and also in campaigns to starve government, curtail voter registrat
of chicago, hadiya pendleton sitting with the first lady last night. nothing could have been more heartbreaking than seeing those people and seeing others. and your pain is of more distant years but no less raw to you. you lost your husband and your son was was grievously injured. >> you know, i look at it with handguns. on some of the things we are going to be doing. closing the gun show loophole because most of those guns are illegal guns. they're not people that went through their background checks and bought these guns. the majority of them are buying them on the black market. they're going to the gun shows. they're getting them over the internet. so legislation that we're talking about can stop that. it's not going to stop immediately. but it's something we can do long term to save lives. you know when you're talking about over 11,000 homicides a year, i understand that people say, well, you're only going to be able maybe correct 8% to 12%. well, that 8% to 12% are quite a few number of people's lives. they don't even talk about the lives that we can possibly save from seriou
. hadiya pendleton's parents there. people from newtown there. we need to hear those issue as well. but the economy and jobs will be the centerpiece. but these other areas certainly priorities given who is sitting in the first lady's box. i think the president is definitely going to raise them. and i think it's definitely going to set a tone for the country for the next several years and even beyond his presidency, if in fact we can get some things done. >> one of the visuals you'll notice, as you're looking at the shots of the capital right now are the green ribbons people are wearing tonight. those are in honor of the victims of sandy hook elementary school, the mass shooting there in december. we are expecting tonight if only because of the guest list from members of congress, more than 30 members of congress giving their tickets to tonight's speech away to somebody associated with an incident of gun violence in this country. but also from the first lady's guest list tonight that the issue of gun violence and gun safety reform will be on the agenda. lawrence, what are you lookin
the newtown tragedy to the hadiya pendleton shooti shooting, the 15-year-old girl shot in chicago, the president has made this very personal. at this point politically. what type of legislation can he realistically get through congress? >> well at this point not too much has changed on the hill since this issue began being raised at the beginning of this congress. right now universal background checks remain the one part of that whole agenda that really seems like the most politically feasible. what i found really interesting in what the president talked about on friday, though, he did bring that gun control message to chicago, a place where he obviously has a long history. >> yes. >> and has lived for many years. when he was talking about that, he brought the issue of newtown into it saying the number of gun deaths you'll have in the city of chicago would equal four newtowns a year and linked it to his personal experience of a son as a single mother, it's not just about gun violence in these communities, it's really about the issues of family. it's something that i think you saw
